New Music Friday - October 28, 2016

Be sure to view a list of upcoming releases here!

Essential Full-Length Releases

CRX - New Skin

At some point over the past ten years, every member of The Strokes had released a record as a solo artist or with another band, except for Nick Valensi. He spent much of that time, when not with The Strokes, providing guitar for other artists, including Regina Spektor, Sia, and Devendra Banhart. He formed this new band three years ago, and this is their debut album.

Watch: "Ways to Fake It"
Listen: "Broken Bones"

Honeyblood - Babes Never Die

Honeyblood is a Glaswegian duo currently made up of Stina Marie Tweedale and Cat Myers. Tweedale formed the band in 2012 with Shona McVicar, both transitioning from other bands. The lo-fi band released their eponymous debut album in 2014. McVicar departed not long after, at which point Myers came on board. Their follow-up was recorded with producer James Dring (Jamie T, Gorillaz) in London.

Slothrust hails from Brooklyn, New York. The grungy, bluesy trio is fronted by Leah Wellbaum, who also plays guitar in the band. Everyone Else is their third album, following 2012's Feels Your Pain and 2014's Of Course You Do.

Tove Lo - Lady Wood

This Swedish singer had a breakout year in 2014 with her debut album, Queen of the Clouds, which hit 14 on the Billboard Hot 100. She's hardly been quiet in the two years following the release of the record; she released multiple singles from the debut record, recorded songs for film soundtracks, featured on songs for other artists, and wrote songs for other artists like Ellie Goulding, Hilary Duff, and MS MR. Her sophomore album is intended as the first part of the double album, with the second expected next year.

This Louisville trio is made up of Lacey Guthrie, Kevin Ratterman, and Maryliz Bender.
